Close To 50 People Have Tested Positive For COVID-19

Jamaica’s Tourism Minister Edmund Bartlett says his Ministry is investigating a claim that close to 50 people have tested positive for COVID-19 at a popular resort in Negril, Westmoreland.

Reports are that the positive test results among the staff of the resort were returned over the duration of the past 2 weeks.

Yesterday Minister Bartlett said surveillance was being done to determine if there was compliance with COVID protocols.

Up to this point, the Tourism Sector has seen a very low rate of COVID-19 infections along its resilient corridors.

According to the Tourism Ministry, the corridors have had a positivity rate of less than 1% in recent months.
